Anyone else with this strange sleep symptom?
Its happened about three times now. I'm just drifting off to sleep, and all of a sudden I feel a sudden "rush" of electricity going down from my chest to my arms, and a buzzing sensation, and I awaken with a start. I feel like I'm close to having a panic attack. Then I try to go back to sleep and the same thing happens again - three or four times before I finally am able to sleep. I have other problems like waking up at 3am and staying awake for a long time, but I know this is normal in menopause.
I'm 50, by the way, and I've having increasing migraines, hot flashes (off and on) and anxiety along with urinary incontinence (slight) for the last two years. Also, my period has always been like clockwork, and I was late 18 days one month recently, and I had two periods last month. So I guess peri is setting in!
